Overtime, facial tissue weakens losing stability and the ability to maintain the features of a young face. In addition, body fat, which gives the face a soft, rounded appearance, migrates down. These changes lead to the appearance of wrinkles (sometimes deep), sagging cheeks, and loose skin on the neck and lower third of the face.
Additional signs of facial aging occur for many reasons, such as genetic composition, skin type, sun exposure, and lifestyle. Radio frequency facelift FaceTite™ eliminates sagging skin, fat deposits in the lower third of the face, the second chin, allows you to tighten your cheeks and make the face contour clearer.
FaceTite™ is one of the most popular aesthetic procedures because it allows you to get an amazing result in a record short time, without cuts, risks, and complications of a surgery.
Nonsurgical Facial Rejuvenation FaceTite™: What Should I Expect?
If you do not want to look older than you feel, but not quite ready for surgery yet, FaceTite™ is a great option for you. You no longer need to put up with the signs of aging in the mirror. You deserve to fall in love with your reflection again!
The procedure is performed without incisions, through micro-punctures using the BodyTite apparatus and a special FaceTite™ nozzle designed for face lifting. FaceTite™ nozzle is specially designed for the specific needs of the skin in the face area, which is quite thin.
The entire procedure lasts no more than 40 minutes and is proven to instantly tighten the skin, although patients will see further improvements within 3-8 weeks as the new collagen forms.
FaceTite™ nonsurgical facial rejuvenation can be used anywhere above the shoulders, but is recommended for skin around the jowls, neck, brows, cheeks, naso-labial folds, eyes, mouth, jawline, and forehead.
The best candidates for a radio frequency facelift are usually patients between 40 and 50, with loose or moderately sagging skin in the middle and lower third of their face. For people with significant excess of facial skin, a classic facelift would be the best choice.
There are only a few instances when the FaceTite™ is not an option:
- Oncological diseases;
- Pregnancy and lactation;
- Exacerbation of hypertension;
- Inflammatory diseases.
Non-invasive nature and excellent results are precisely the key advantages of the procedure. FaceTite™ significantly lifts the face in the most gentle way. Simply imagine: there are no scars as all steps are completed through micro-punctures that subsequently disappear. Recovery will take 7-12 days. To compare, after a classic facelift, a patient needs a month to restore appearance and facial mobility.
Already during the procedure we can see how the skin contracts and tightens, deep wrinkles and sagging go away. And this is a result that will improve within 3-5 months as radio frequency energy, in addition to restoring collagen, starts the process of new collagen formation. A week after the procedure, when puffiness goes away, you can see how the shape of the face is defined, and how the skin tightened in the chin.
What About Recovery?
The recovery period is relatively easy. It is necessary to wear a compression mask for 7-10 days, and in the next 5-7 days, the mask is worn only at night. You will have to follow up with your doctor on the third and the seventh days (office visit). It is also recommended to avoid vigorous physical activity and stay in the sun for 2-3 weeks after the procedure.
In general, after 14 days, you can return to your previous lifestyle and enjoy the compliments on your refreshed and youthful appearance.
When Can I See the Result?
The first result is visible immediately after the procedure. As days go by, the result will improve, and the intermediate result can be evaluated after 1-2 weeks. The full lifting result will be visible in 10-14 days after the procedure.
What if you could look younger without surgery? Now you can choose FaceTite™, a minimally invasive procedure for the face and certain areas of the body.
